The song is “I Want You to Want Me” by Cheap Trick, but you’ve never heard it quite like this. Beyond the extraordinary musicianship and arrangements, the beauty of P.M.J. is they force us to experience something we know in a new way. Perhaps more importantly, in this setting, we’re rarely threatened by that new idea and experience.
We may not always like it as much as the original, but we allow ourselves experience it regardless. And in a world increasingly polarized by politics and entrenched beliefs, experiencing a new idea is both magical and rare.
